How did you get involved in this project?
Although the bulk of the score is all original work there are two "found objects" that inhabit a couple of cues. They are both piano pieces: the slow movement of Schubert D.959 and the well known "funeral march" from the Chopin Op.35. I used these fragments in the film after discussing with Ari his reasons for including the Schubert in the original trailer - turns out his mother was a pianist and that these pieces meant something to him personally. So it made perfect sense to refer to this material in a couple of scenes.
I felt like the entire film should have this "haunted" quality, so the music is like a hallucination - actually this is pretty natural territory for me. The main "haunted ocean" music is all about that - a sort of unresolved, weightless, lost melancholia is the general tone I was looking for.
You worked with Future Sounds Of London in the past, any prospects of doing electronic music again?
Who would you like to work with in the future?
BTW, "Waltz With Bashir" is now coming out in graphic novel form. Very cool.
